Rated 5 out of 5 by Cilly Exactly what I was after
Skeptical at first about using such a thin mat, but it's exactly what I was after. Haven't used it on hardwood floors yet, but on carpeted floors it's absolutely perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdlehman I absolutely love my new travel mat. I've always taken a yoga mat with me wherever I travel; however, I have never had one that travelled so easily. Iwould highly
recommend it for anyone who travels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by YogiNYC A does-it-all yoga mat
I'm an RYT, so I love that this mat is so light and "packable" so that I can maintain my practice while I'm on the road. Used on its own, this mat's cushioning is minimal, so I find I use it more often as an extra layer over my yoga mat - its absorbency makes it especially great for Hot Yoga classes. Easy to wash, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YogiG Awesome & Practical
Since I travel a lot, I need something that is both light, thin, durable and easy to pack. If that is what you're looking for, this is the mat for you. I love that it has both the grippy side (that works on most surfaces including hotel carpets) and the softer side which somehow keeps me from slipping yet is nice to the touch. I also love that it can serve as a mat topper (towel) for the hotter classes. I have tried other travel mats, but this one is my favorite by far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RuralNYC Highly portable, but very scratchy
I purchased this travel mat for a summer's worth of travel without any yoga studios nearby. It did fold easily into any size I needed it to be, but packing it was far more enjoyable than using it. The mat itself is quite rough on the hands and on any other skin that comes in contact with it -- it uses roughness rather than "stick" to keep you from slipping. And yet I still slipped. In the end, I did my yoga on regular rugs, and left this folded in the suitcase. I love the idea of a travel mat, but the execution -- at least in this one -- left something to be desired. It was a sad miss of the mark from Gaiam, which usually has such stellar products.
